Who is the MY₿ Phone right for?

People who want to stop letting Big Tech track them all the time, but still want a modern smartphone with a mega-fast processor, solid apps, a great camera, beautiful screen, and really long battery life.

(turns out getting rid of Google's trackers & spyware extends a single battery charge by up to 400%!)

Who shouldn't get one?

Anyone who feels they absolutely have to own an iPhone or the standard Google/Android experience.

We think that is a terrible life choice- but we're a little biased.

On phone sales: Is this just a re-branded affiliate/MLM/scam that political activists will use to grab a quick buck?

No.

Your purchase supports the production of educational content at mineyour.biz and our various media outlets.

On Hardware: Is this just a re-badged piece of junk like the Umidigi A9 Pro?

LOL, definitely not.

We use the industry standard for security mobile hardware: the Google Pixel line of phones.

"Wait, the The Pixel is manufactured by Google, but it keeps me safe from Google?"

Ironically yes, Google- the same Google that collects as much internet traffic & personal user data as it can get its hands on- that Google- also manufactures some of the most open, secure, & advanced hardware that currently exist (for Android).
But that hardware is only PRIVATE if it's modified correctly.

What makes it different from a Pixel phone I might buy on Amazon?

We do the following:

  • Physically refurbish/renew a pre-owned device (or purchase a new-in-box model)
  • Replace "double-shot spyware" Pure Google Android OS with a "decaf" version of Android Open Source (AOSP)
  • Pre-install essential physical security accessories 
  • Fully re-lock the bootloader
    • so that a an attacker cannot easily bypass the operating system if they gain physical possession of your phone
  • Offer this value-added product to people who are unable to do these steps on their own (or just don't have the time).

It's really that simple.

It really does protect users from advertiser spyware & unnecessary tracking.

And for the money: it's 100% worth it.

The MY₿ Phone is secure and private because:

  1. We pair this advanced hardware with a completely Google-free & privacy respecting version of Android: CalyxOS
    1. (Kind of like installing Linux* on your laptop instead of Windows)
    2. It already has multiple privacy-respecting apps preloaded
    3. We show you additional great apps that we personally use/endorse, which you can download securely & verify on your own.
  2. We re-lock the boot loader so nobody can access your data by running a different operating system.
  3. We place a physical privacy shield on the screen- so that 3rd parties & security cameras can't see what's on your screen (from a security perspective, this trips up more people than you might think).
  4. It's in a protective case: look, if your phone breaks it's not secure at all, because it's not usable anymore, right?
  5. We include a faraday bag so you can make your phone "invisible" to cell towers when it's not in use.

"Hey, you mentioned *Linux- why not just use a Linux phone?"

We love Linux. Linux, as an operating system, is far more flexible than Android- and hopefully Linux phone hardware will be as good or better than Android hardware some day. Today Android devices offer far better cameras, screens, & batteries with a "good enough" blend of privacy & security features. And the phone model we use for MY₿ Phone consistently scores points for camera quality, beautiful screens, & great battery life.

Why the Pixel 4 and 4 XL?

They support wireless charging, are water resistant, and have one of the best camera & processor combos ever put in a Pixel device.
Also the 4xl has the biggest, highest resolution screen ever put onto a Pixel phone.
Security/privacy developers have committed to write code for both models long term, even though there will be newer hardware on the market.
So, you know, privacy with added creature comforts.
 
Why not offer the Pixel 5 or the Pixel 4a 5G?
Unfortunately these models promote the use of newer 5G-enabled systems-on-chip, which may compromise security & privacy (and even health) in unforeseen ways.
Without getting too "tin foil hat" on you: we simply do not trust 5G wireless networks yet, as they have little track record, and want to avoid using them for as long as possible. We encourage you to do the same.
 
Are you phasing out the Pixel 3a?
Yes.
The Pixel 3a is still a great value for the money, but we want to offer an even better core experience with a higher resolution screen, improved camera quality, and much extended battery life.
We now offer the Pixel 4 and 4xl models, both new in box and renewed (for the budget conscious user).

Here's what you'll experience with the MY₿ Phone:

A fully De-Googled version of Android Open Source, with several privacy apps preinstalled like Signal, TOR browser, Yubico Authenticator, f-droid open source app store, and a free starter VPN - plus no Google Play store, no Google Apps, and no Google ID login.. Completely Google-FREE!
Features the premier curated open source app store, f-droid.
Also includes the Aurora Store - download any app on Google Play fully anonymously. (there is even a mode for logging in to download your legally obtained, paid apps) Even with the improved security & privacy of the MY₿ Phone, using f-droid & Aurora, you can download almost anything that runs on Android.
A few apps that work without Google Play services: Browsers like TOR, Bromite, DuckDuckGo, Firefox; OpenVPN; messengers like Signal, Briar, Keybase, Telegram; media apps like Spotify, Audible, Netflix, Prime Video, HBOMax, CWTV; and various other apps like Amazon, Skype, Uber, PayPal, Kindle, Viber, and more.

"So what if I depend on apps that require Google Play services, but still want to keep my app usage data private from Google?"

No problem- just need to cover your tracks: MicroG is pre-installed so you can use Google services functionality if you want to with certain apps- but only send anonymous data back to Google.
This allows you to run play store apps that need push notifications (like ProtonMail), without Google tying your personal identity to the app or to the data it pushes to your phone.

"Sounds great... so what doesn't work?"

Certain apps (like Discord) simply do not work, even with MicroG.
Some developers & companies are simply too reliant on full Google integration.
But these fringe cases are usually pretty rare.
